Dear Members of the Bhakthi group : I have a question about the correctness of our Panchangam or almanac. Can we follow them in Northern America? The Samvatsaram in the north of Vindya mountain is seven years different from that in the south of Vindya mountain. My understanding is that the Panchangams (Vakya Panchangam, Kumbakonam-Madadathu panchangam, Arcot Panchangam, Ananda Pothini or Srirangam Koil Panchangam) published in Tamil Naduare based on sunrise in Tanjore, Tamil Nadu. To follow them in Northern America I usually recalculate time for thithi, masa sankramanam based on local sunrise. time in U.S. Is that correct ? AdiyEn. Govindarajan dasan.
